Easy to Knit Poncho for Beginning Knitters

knit ponchoI finally finished this knit poncho. When you have several projects going, it takes a little longer to finish one.

This is a really easy pattern (name of pattern: Satin – Poncho (knit)) and you’ll soon have it memorized. I recommend this pattern to knitters who want to learn how to:

  • Knit basic lace
  • Seam vertical to horizontal edges (see Knitty for instructions)
  • Block acrylic yarn (you’ll want to block the two pieces before you seam them together)
  • Knit i-cord (the pattern suggests using a ribbon at the neckline, but I wanted i-cord – I used size 3 double-pointed needles)

I knitted this poncho with yarn from my stash – Caron Simply Soft Autumn Red. I look forward to wearing this in the fall!

Here are some images which show more detail:

    I am looking for the pattern you used on the beautiful red poncho. I checked Bernet
    but was not certain which one you used.

    It is beautiful!!!

    happy knitting
